    It's possible that you accidentally damaged or loosened the screen connector or cable during your repair.

    Check the motherboard very carefully for any signs of damage before proceeding. If any components on the motherboard were damaged, you'll likely need a new motherboard.

    My guess is the lcd cable isn't properly seated but Try a reset first by pressing the home and power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work then try reconnecting the lcd ( power off first !). With the iPad 2 the 3 g part is soldered to main logic board so yes it does matter if it is 3 g or not if you are considering swapping logic boards.
